“Wanted” and “Kick Ass” comic creator Mark Millar is launching a new UK comics magazine called “CLiNT” and in a recent press release he gave a quick update on the “Kick-Ass” sequel.
“‘Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall’ has been scheduled for production in 2011 for a 2012 cinema release, but fans of the first movie can find out what happens two years in advance by picking up CLiNT” says Millar, suggesting the first part of the sequel comic will premiere in the mag’s first issue.
Has the “Kick Ass 2” film been greenlit though? Unlikely. After a month’s release in various territories, the $30 million feature has picked up only a modest $72 million worldwide.
Update (5/6): “Kick-Ass” star Christopher Mintz-Plasse has shot down the talk of the sequel gearing up. The actor revealed on his Twitter – “Don’t believe what you are hearing about Kick-Ass 2 guys. It is not confirmed, but I will love to do it when the time is right!”
